8:45 – 11:45

We take the responsibility for the comfort and care of children very seriously. Therefore, we have an experienced childcare provider with criminal and child abuse clearances on staff in the nursery every Sunday.  Because of the consistency of staff, the children come to know Mrs. Rosebrook and any anxiety from being left is quickly diffused.  So, even though we ask parents and other members to volunteer to help in the nursery, the children know that every week Mrs. Rosebrook will be there.

Children’s Hour

10:40am  4 years old – 1st grade

Children attend the worship service and then leave for Children’s Hour following the children’s message. After a Bible story lesson and craft time, they engage in free play until they are picked up by their parents following the service. The Christian Education Director leads this time.

Church School
9:00-10:00 September to the Sunday before Memorial Day weekend

Students in pre-school through fifth grade participate in KID CONNECTION.  This is a large group/small group format for church school.  Everyone gathers for large group time during which songs are sung, joys and concerns are heard and prayers are offered. Children have the joy of giving to the Lord and the Bible story and main point for the day are presented. This presentation takes many forms. Sometimes it is a short play, sometimes a storyteller comes, other times the presentation is a puppet show or DVD.  Often the main point is discerned by the students after participating in a game or activity designed to illustrate the application to our lives of the point of the Bible story. After the large group time, the students go to small groups by age and grade level. In small group, the Bible story and its lesson are reinforced through activities, crafts  and conversation. This is where the children build relationship with other children and their teachers. This is a place where they are known and individual needs are met.  At FPCP, we want children to know the stories of the Bible, but we believe that being able to apply the teachings to everyday life is also extremely important.

In the summer, children participate in Children’s Hour during the service. There is no separate hour for church school then.

The Lighthouse


The Lighthouse is a summer ministry for adults and children. The offering for summer 2013 Vacation Bible School is:

The Lighthouse Celebrates Christmas in June! The dates are June 24-27. The time is 6:00- 7:45 pm.  Simon the Seahorse will be back! Each evening will begin with a light family supper, followed by Bible Story Workshop, Christmas Craft Corner and Mistletoe Music. Monday night’s focus will be on Joseph and Mary. On Tuesday, the Stable and the birth of Jesus will be highlighted. The Shepherds and Angels will be the focus on Wednesday and on Thursday we will learn of the Wisemen.  Parents are invited to attend with their children, to attend the TBD classes for adults or to be back for pick-up at 7:45. On Thursday night, families are encouraged to be a part of a special last night Mistletoe Music at 7:20.

Youth


The Youth Class takes students to the next level of their faith.  Growing up, the youth have heard many Bible stories and now is the time to go deeper. Students in this class see how the truths and values of those stories play out in real life and in the face of difficult questions. The class meets in the Youth Lounge on the third floor.

Youth Group

During the school year, the youth group meets on the second and fourth Sundays of the month as well as for special events. The meetings run from 7 – 8:30. The youth meet for a time of games and a time of exploration and discussion of God and His Word. Other topics of interest or concern may be explored in view of our faith. FPCP Youth offers many fun and inspiring trips and events throughout the year; everything from weekend retreats and day trips to biking, hiking, and bowling. Opportunities for mission and community service are also a part of the program. Students may go to two shelters in Philadelphia with the church’s People to People ministry to take breakfast or dinner to the people twice a month as well as other mission projects. In the summer, the group now meets for special events but plans are being formulated for meetings in the summer as well.  Opportunities for mission and community service are also a part of the program.

Adult Education


Adult Church School
9:00-10:00 from September through May

The E-100 Bible Study Group is studying the 100 Essential verses or passages in the Bible. This very intentional study from Scripture Union has proven to be exciting and beneficial for the group. The Bible Study is held in the library.

The Topics in Life Today (TILT) group meets in the parlor. As the name implies, this group tackles subjects that are in the news as well as those of interest to the group. Currently, the group is reading and discussing The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg.

 The Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study

Third Thursday of the month
8:00 am  Breakfast at the Starr Diner (ACME shopping center on Starr St.)
9:00 am  Bible Study in the church library
This group meets year round.

Library Resource Center

We have a lending library to meet the expanding needs of our congregation. Our inventory includes DVD’s and videos for all ages, biblical commentaries, Bible studies, and inspirational Christian living books. The separate Children’s Library has it own space across from the library. Fitted out with comfortable bean bag chairs and pillows, it is a popular spot for children to be when their parents are in a meeting or visiting with others after church.

Camp Donegal
Each year, the Christian Education Committee offers partial scholarships to children of our church to attend Camp Donegal. The camp is run by the Donegal Presbytery and is located in Airville, PA. The summer schedule includes bicycle camp, artistic expression camp, wet ‘n wild camp, and many more. Check it out at www.CampDonegal.org.
